8 date night outfits that are anything but cliché

8 date night outfits that are anything but cliché

Fear not, we won’t point you in the direction of yet another red sequin dress


While women can get their head around finding an outfit for just about any dress code these days, something about the elusive notion of date night still seems to send our heads spinning in the sartorial department.

Of course, the secret sauce is an outfit that makes you look and feel like yourself at your best, whether that’s leggings or Hervé Léger.

It’d be trite of us to suggest a roundup of been-there-done-that little black dresses or sparkly red frocks for Hallmark’s most romantic and heart emoji-filled holiday, but please, by all means, go for it if that’s already your plan.
